#' @title Translate Endpoint
#' @description  The translate API draws on search, but uses the Giphy
#' "special sauce" to handle translating from one vocabulary to another.
#' In this case, words and phrases to GIFs. Example implementations of
#' translate can be found in the Giphy Slack, Hipchat, Wire, or
#' Dasher integrations. Use a plus or url encode for phrases.
#' @param s - A term or phrase to translate into a GIF
#' @param rating - A rating for age appropriate gifs.  Options include \code{"y"}, \code{"g"}, \code{"pg"}, \code{"pg-13"} and \code{"r"}.
#' @param lang - Regional content; see the allowed 2-letter ISO 639-1 country codes listed in the Details.
#' @param sticker Should a GIF be returned or an animated sticker (with transparent background)?  Default to \code{FALSE}.
#' @param api_key - Giphy provides a default \code{api_key} value for public beta testing: \code{"dc6zaTOxFJmzC"}.  This is the default value.

#'     Tanslates a word or phrase to a GIF using the \code{giphy} API.
#'     Be aware that failure to use the \code{rating} tag may result in gifs that are not safe for work use.
#'     The default API key used here is for testing purposes only.  More information on the use of the giphy API is available at \url{https://github.com/Giphy/GiphyAPI}
#'     Language support is documented in the giphy API documentation for Language Support: \url{https://github.com/Giphy/GiphyAPI#language-support}.
